Love On The Rocks
By: Wayne Brown
Why do you look at me that way?
When I look at you like this?
Is there something you need to say?
Is there something that I missed?
Why do you feel so sad like that?
When I don’t feel the same?
Is there something not given tit for tat?
Do I not know how to play this game?
Why do you hide and shed your tears?
When will your sadness finally heal?
Is there something more to calm your fears?
Is there something I should feel?
Why is your life such a secret hidden away?
When is that diary an open book?
Is there anything more that I could say?
Do I not deserve another look?
Why is your smile hidden in your pocket?
Who locked it away in there?
Is there something I can do to unlock it?
Can I not show you how much I care?
Why can’t our lives be lived as one?
Why do you fight and fear it so?
Is there something I can do to get it done?
Or would you prefer that I just go?
Why can’t love take root and grow?
What makes you fight its advance?
Is there something I don’t get or know?
Can you not give our love a chance?
